What's Been Happening

Hey everyone!  I know it has been ages since I last posted, but now I finally have time to blog more since it's the summer!!  I am so happy and relieved that it is finally summer, now I can relax and I can now say that I am officially a sophomore in high school!

I have been busy working on writing my novel lately, and I am really getting into it!  I am still on my first draft, but I am making a lot of progress.  I want my book to be around 100,000 words, which is good for contemporary YA fiction, which is the genre that I am writing in.

I have also have some great news!!  Just when school finally ended my dad got a Chromebook laptop for me!  I was and am so happy!  It works great, it's fast and it's portable.  I am also so happy because now I don't have to share a computer with my brother, that can be really hard sometimes...

I am also so excited because we will be going up to my great-grandpa's cottage soon!  We always go fishing, play cards, water ski, and watch fireworks there, (since we will be there on the fourth of July.)  We all have so much fun, and it's a great way to get the family together so we can all have an awesome time and talk about everything new that's been going on!

Sorry for not blogging in so long and I will definitely get back into it this summer!! :)

  1. Yay for being an official junior! And big congrats on the Chromebook. It sounds awesome! I hope you have a wonderful summer vacation with the family. :-)

  2. Yay! I can't wait to head up North either! So glad you'll have more time now to write and just enjoy things. :)

  3. Always nice to hear exciting updates, Alyssa! Glad you got such a cool laptop to make your work much easier. Enjoy your Summer and send us updates when you can.

  4. You completely forgot to mention all the food we cook and eat... :)

  5. Good luck with that novel :)

  6. You sound like me, as the saying goes life is what happens when you've made other plans, so I can understand when life takes over and blogging takes a back seat. Good luck with your writing,
